Past Clients

Uniform Code Council, UCCnet Division (A subsidiary of GS1US)

Uniform Code Council is a not-for-profit organization, chartered by the CPG (Consumer Product Goods) industry for establishing standards in electronic commerce and bar-code technologies.

Dhara consultants serve as the chief architects, providing architectural and design guidance in building the online exchange. Several major retailers and suppliers such as Wal-mart, P&G, Target, Unilever etc., utilize this system currently.

Computer Sciences Corporation / IRS Modernization Project

The mission of this US Congress-chartered project was to modernize the IRS system. Dhara consultants worked on the STIR (infrastructure) team to develop underlying application architecture. Technologies used were IBM MQ Series, Java, HTML, XML and C++. Our team was responsible for defining the architecture of key components of the system, as well as implementing key portions of it.

Fannie Mae – J2EE Projects

Dhara Consultants provided J2EE Architecture services for several J2EE projects. Weblogic, Oracle, PL/SQL technologies were used in delivering this project successfully.

T. Rowe Price – Mutual Fund Applications

The Dhara team developed several software applications using C++, CORBA. AIX, Windows, DB2 and Java technologies. These applications are used to provide mutual fund data to end-users.

IBM – Health Data Network

IBM Health Data Network choose Dhara to developed online patient chart system, using C++, DB2, AIX, HTML, HL7 and Perl technologies. This system maintains patient charts online and is used by huge hospital chains such as Columbia Presbyterian and University Of Washington’s Barnes Jewish Christian Hospitals. Automated medical alerts are sent to doctors based on patient condition. At the time this was developed, it was only the second such sophisticated system in the world, the other one being maintained by US Army.

Phar-Mor – Re-organization

During the creation of the successful plan of re-organization of the major deep discount retailer, Dhara consultants led a team of outside professionals in the implementation of category management in the firm. Dhara closely worked with the merchants in the company to re-structure the product mix and increase the gross margin of the firm by 2% (200 basis points).

Supply Chain Visibility POC

Working with an off-shore team of developers, Dhara Consultants led an effort to create a proof of concept and reference implementation of a supply chain visibility project that allowed companies to track and trace products from the original components’ shipment points in Asia through the ports and logistics handling including final assembly and shipment to the end customer in the United States. This implementation uses public and private registries, bar code symbols, global identifier’s, RFID codes and readers supporting EPCGlobal implementation standards and numbering.

Sales Pipeline Management

Working closely with the senior team for management, Dhara Consultants created a system that managed the pipeline line process from sales lead qualification to complete implementation. Scorecards for progress were created in a portal that presented information from the various systems inside of UCCnet in a “mash-up” from these systems so each participant in the sales and implementation process had their own up-to the minute view of progress.

Product Governance

Dhara Consultants worked with a core group of representatives from trading partners to establish an effective form of governance for the requirements and releases of the UCCnet Service in a way that met the needs of the user companies and provided an effective mechanism for release management and acceptance for a large user community of Global 500 customers. This was done in a way that included the representation of Commercial Solution Providers as well as small and medium enterprises in the process.
